So is this recipe for a 5 gallon batch or 6.5 like the OP stated? I'm set-up for 5 gallon batches and want to try the recipe as intended but after reading all 14 pages of the thread i'm getting mixed amounts. Either way going from 8 gallons to 5 or 6.5 gallons seems a bit high of an evaporation rate for a 60min boil. Anyone?

I've tried everything and made my share of starters. I even have a stir plate. I allways go back to dry. Easy to use. Dump in...no mess no fuss....done.
